Empty house gone to seed

Empty kitchen with no one to feed

Where once was laughter, spiders spin

Forgotten dreams ... an off key song

No cat in the window... everyone's gone

Where sheets once danced on a line

The tire swing replaced by poison vine

Wildflowers where the roses grew

Where is the family that loved and knew

Where sunlight painted a bright design

Floors once swept now warped with time

The slap of a screen door, the shout of a girl

Little secrets and presents piled

But roses still bloom in spring

Robins, parrots, and bluebirds sing

Do ghosts knit sweaters or answer the phone?

Do ghosts light candles when they are alone?

Abandoned house, forgotten lives

The house sits empty, nobody's home...............

Sitting in the garden where the shadows waver,

I imagine myself a hero,a martyr or a sea-rover.
Out of a world of clocks and works
My office-troubled fancy turns
To the pretty mental photographs, the dull laugh over.

Sitting on a chair I am one of those
Who are not disposed of, but who dispose;
Nothing is here to alter or disturb.
My search for the active or the passive verb,
But in the garden sitting at ease
On the old rugged chair...........
i recall the sweet memories, those that still tranquil.

ODE TO LOVE.......................

The road to happiness is laiden with twists and turns, sharp and winding.
The obstacles never ending.
Each day gives us hope for a brighter tomorrow, new beginings.
The promise of things to come.
Our hopes and dreams never fading, nor will we allow it.

When the days are long and it seems I can barely hold on,
I close my eyes and think of you.
And just as the warmth of the sun touches my skin,
I recall how you touch my heart.

I take a deep breathe and sigh.
I picture your smile,
The innocence in your laughter.
I think of how you have brought so much love, faith,
Hope and happiness into my life.
Proving that true love really does exist.
I think of your touch, the warmth in your embrace.
I feel your strength in everything that you do.
And it gives me the strength and courage to push forward.
I've never felt so complete or so alive till I found you.

I open my eyes, smiling.
Knowing nothing can bring me down.
The road to happiness has been long.
Sometimes taking us down a worn and beaten path.
Our faith in love has pulled us through, showing us the way.
And so, we shall walk side by side, eternally, through our loves journey.
